The AAL Forum is the annual showcase event for the people involved in the AAL Programme’s projects and the AAL community. Each year, it brings together policy makers, ICT developers, manufacturers, health professionals, commissioners, businesses, venture companies, technologists, academics, designers, carers and, of course, older adults, to come and see the latest developments in this exciting area of research. Innovation in this field is only in its infancy, but the steadily ageing global population means that it holds great commercial potential, evidenced by the increasing number of investors present at the event each year.



The AAL Forum is a lively and social affair that brings together a broad spectrum of stakeholders from all over Europe. It will host over 700 international congress participants who will seek information from 40 exhibitors, 30 workshops and various keynote speakers about new AAL products and services. It offers an excellent opportunity to network and gives participants a great platform to exchange experiences and ideas. The matchmaking event brings together suitable potential business partners to talk about their work and strike up real collaborations, and the interactive nature of the sessions and workshops ensures that delegates get talking with each other.


The exhibition floor at the forum showcases the latest existing and developing ICT solutions, with interactive displays and poster sessions providing valuable information about what’s available on the market. For policy makers and health professionals, these solutions have the potential to transform the lives of the older adults they are responsible for. For investors, they represent huge opportunities for developing business within this emerging sector.


Other activities at the forum include talks from prestigious guest speakers, a Hackathon in which developers compete to create new ideas over the course of the forum, and social events in the evening that provide the perfect occasions for talking over ideas in a more informal setting.
